Co-or­di­na­tor ur­gently needed

Stratford Press - - News -

Breast Cancer Foun­da­tion NZ ur­gently needs an area co­or­di­na­tor in Strat­ford to help man­age vol­un­teers and co­or­di­nate peo­ple for the an­nual ap­peal on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12 and Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 13.

The area co-or­di­na­tor will man­age a small team of vol­un­teers, re­ceive and dis­trib­ute stock to vol­un­teers, over­see the ap­peal sites in Strat­ford on the ap­peal days, and bank the do­nated funds.

Dur­ing the ap­peal, vol­un­teers across New Zealand will raise money at more than 1000 col­lec­tion points. Their ef­forts will fund re­search into new treat­ments, sup­port for women go­ing through breast cancer, and life-sav­ing aware­ness and ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes.

“The Pink Rib­bon Ap­peal funds a large chunk of our work, so there’s a di­rect link be­tween the time peo­ple give on the street and our abil­ity to fund re­search, sup­port and ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes,” says Evan­gelia Hen­der­son, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Breast Cancer Foun­da­tion NZ. “If you can help, please get in touch with us now.”

■ If you’re happy to be a co­or­di­na­tor or are keen to vol­un­teer, please con­tact: vol­un­teer@bcf.org.nz or call 0508
